The title says it all. There’s really not much more I could add to it except to say I’m more than tired of this trend of a few folks trying to rewrite or cancel history because it doesn’t comply with their vision of what is right and wrong. When will they learn values change and if we erase what happened in the past, we will repeat it? When will they open their eyes and realize they are this generation’s McCarthy damning the commies. Except, instead of “commies”, they condemn those who aren’t woke enough or liberal enough or whatever. They’ve toppled statues. They’ve demanded–and received–buildings and schools change names. Now they’ve come for Dr. Seuss. When do we finally say not just “enough is enough” but “this is too much”?
I’m hip deep putting the finishing touched on Jaguar Rising. So I’m going to just leave a series of links for you this morning, all relating to the Dr. Seuss story. Let’s discuss the topic and its implications on everything else that published more than 20 years ago. Tell us your thoughts about the books and if you think the move to quash the books is right or not–and support your claim. Keep the comments cordial. No hitting. Try not to veer too far into politics.
The floor is now yours.
